In order to make epoxy work, you must combing resin and a hardening agent to make the bond as strong as necessary. Until recently most adhesives were not very good at bonding two different materials such as metal and wood or in bonding non-porous materials like glass. But, with the synthetic matter contained in epoxies, you can do both of these types of jobs with ease. Most of the time, when you are making an epoxy adhesive, you do not mix the two parts together until you are ready to use them. Many are also thermo-activated, which means they also need heat in order to form the bonds.
That was then and today Simpson epoxy requires drilling a hole an eighth of an inch oversize and filling it with epoxy. I still can’t believe and to this day am a firm believer in concrete epoxies.
Then attach the sail to the mast of your boat. Sails are consisting of several pieces, and these are sewn together with sail twine, a specialized fiber that is stronger than typical thread. When the sewing needle is threaded with sail twine, the twine is twisted to add strength, and wax is applied so the twine will hold that twist. The sail will allow you to keep moving even when there is no wind.
Now the most important part; make sure you purchase the clear sealant that gets painted on overtop the epoxy (usually sold separately). If you do not use this glaze coating, the bottom layer of epoxy will chip, come up, and the flecks will get ripped out. You paint on the clear coat just like you did the bottom epoxy layer. Depending on the type of kit you get, there is normally a non-slip additive you can mix into either the base Wood Epoxy coat or the topcoat of glaze. Use the non-slip additive! Without this additive the paint will act like a sheet of ice when wet. You can also add a bit more non-skid additive to the top or bottom coat than comes with the kit, but you will have to purchase this separately.

Mix the epoxy with care as it comes in two parts – the liquid and chemical. You need to use all of the contents to get the correct mix. If you miss out on the right proportion, the grout will be either too thick or set too fast. As this grout is sensitive to hot temperatures, check for the curing time according to the temperature at your place. In hot weather, this epoxy grout tends to set faster. Be ready with all the other equipment and tools beforehand, so that you do not let the grout mix stay for longer time. Remove the excess epoxy before it dries out as it might become difficult to remove once it sets. Clean your bathroom floor tiles regularly to keep the floors fresh and shiny for many years.
Read the instructions, clean out the holes properly with the recommended brush, insert the proper amount of epoxy, and rotate the all thread slowly into the hole as the epoxy starts to ooze out of it. Do not touch or move the bolt for the next 24 hours.
